priorities backwards. if taliban takes control again in afghanistan, we won't have to worry about protecting drone bases or diplomats because we won't be there at all. and i think this is part of the unreality of the obama administration's approach there. the low troop numbers that they're contemplating, that they will be discussing with president karzai will not be any where near sufficient to accomplish our strategic objective, america's strategic objective which is defeating the taliban. and i think we're --. bill: it is fascinating. i apologize for the interruption how the events in benghazi are now shaping our foreign policy whether this administration wants to admit it or not. >> well that perhaps is the small glimmer of good news that they recognize that benghazi was a real debacle for our security policies for embassies overseas but the larger question here in afghanistan is the administration's unwillingness to do what we need to do to prevent 10 years of sacrifice and loss of life by our forces from simply being wasted if the taliban come back into power. bill: well this administra

immaturity of afghan forces alongside the continuing presence of the taliban, isn't it in our interest to walk slowly out of this conflict rather than too quickly? >> well, it may be in our national security interest to do that, martin, but there's been a great deal of anticipation that this conflict was coming to an end. we saw during the presidential campaign that they d republicans tried to make a big deal of squabbling over the details but they, too, were seeing a fairly rapid end to this, and this expedites it somewhat more quickly. so i think there's going to be a lot of crossing of fingers and hoping things don't turn into an even worse disaster there. but this had already been baked in the cake. there's no political will to stay any further. >> okay. mike, i followed much of what you have written on the subject of afghanistan, and it seems as though you feel a little more optimistic about the country. but given the endemic corruption, the harboring of pakistani terrorists along the border, the confused way that nato has pumped money into afghanistan, do we leave a nation that r

as a whole, and how they will sustain the fight against the taliban after most american troops are gone. when i say "most american troops," i'm leaving open the doors the president has for leaving behind a training advisory and counter terrorism mission of some thousands of troops. the president wants to do this as he did in iraq, the hang up as also in iraq is whether the afghani government grants a status of forces agreement that will give us legal immunity for our troops. that's the american military presence around the world. we have it now in afghanistan based upon u.n. and other considerations, but that expires in 2014. that's the key issue that they are looking at right now. what president karzaiments beyond some troops is military support in terms of funding equipment and also economic assistance. cheryl: not a lot of willingness on either side to come to an agreement, we hope there's a sense today on what u.s. troops are doing in afghanistan after 20 # 14, but there are some of the democratic party that say we need to pull all troops out of afghanistan by 2014 with the resurgence of
